Why are there 2 options for the same strike and date? For instance, BTU has two options for the jan 09 for $40 and $50.-P
paru100:Because BTU spun off Patriot Coal (PCX). The 'old' pre spin off options become non-standard options:Jan 50 Call (L-09) XZVAJ = 100 shares of BTU, 10 shares of PCXand the newer ones are standard options:Jan 50 Call (L-09) ZZTAJ = 100 shares of BTUMystery solved. :-))Denny (Sherlock) Schlesinger
Thanks. Is there a site where you found that out? I saw a similar scenario in BAM. I assume it is the same case, since they spun out BIP recently.-P
My broker's website (Ameritrade) has the info. Options are marked "S" or "NS" and the detailed quote tells you exactly what you are buying or selling.You could try CBOE:http://www.cboe.com/Denny Schlesinger
